At LifeThyme CrossFit we believe kids can do anything!
We set goals and teach teamwork and technique in a fun, safe setting. Our goal is to help kids develop a lifelong love of fitness.
The LifeThyme CrossFit Kids program works with children from 5 through to 16 years of age to introduce and develop physical skills in a group setting focused on fun and safety that will benefit them for a lifetime. Under the watchful eye of Certified CrossFit Kids Trainer Henry Adderley, participants will build correct movement patterns in fundamental human movements. Based on the principle of Mechanics, Consistency and then Intensity, CrossFit Kids emphasizes good movement throughout childhood and adolescence. Consistently good mechanics translates to physical literacy, enhanced sports performance and fewer sports injuries for kids. Not only that, a vast body of research indicates that exercise is beneficial to cognitive function, which means consistent adherence to the program can have a positive impact on children’s academic achievement.
CrossFit Kids is meant to be BIG fun for all ages. Broad-Inclusive-General fun. Fun means we provide an active alternative to sedentary pursuits, which means less childhood obesity and all-around better health for our children. Further, the needs of second graders and high-school varsity wrestlers differ by degree and not kind; the program is scalable for any age or experience level and accounts for the varied maturation status one can find in a class full of kids. CrossFit Kids is designed to be minimalist; it is inexpensive and often requires little or no equipment, allowing a wide array of socioeconomic groups an opportunity to be physically fit and physically active throughout their lives.
